Waiting for March

Hasn’t it been a long winter?  In many ways beautiful, and in some ways lllooonnnngggg…  I know I will better appreciate the spring when if comes!

So….no images of snow here!  Just a few things that define my February.

Threaded and ready to begin a boundweave wall hanging on my wonderful hand-me-down Toika.

My 2-yr. old camellia blooming for the first time!  A wonderful pink for these grey/white days.  It’s called “Kramer’s Delight” and it is delighting me!




Feb. 2011 piliated woodpecker 037 

A frequent visitor to our woods, but my first success at catching him on film! (Actually, my husband’s success, not mine.)




 Beading RAW crystals (1)A newly finished bracelet. Two rows of Right angle weave  attached, beginning to end, to form a closed ring, then crystals are added.  You can tell I was thinking of spring when I chose these colors!

I just watched this video three times.  The woven image is beautiful and the filming is so well done.  Marvelous! It makes me want to get my big Shannock warped!

You can't trust the sun
this time of year; it's bright light
holds a bitter cold

A scene from our recent trip to the vineyards on the North Fork of Long Island.  We missed getting any photographs in sun, although it was sunny during part of our stay.  I have an image in my head of rows of dark vines casting clear blue shadow patterns on the brilliantly sunlit snow .
